There was a short briefing in easy-to-understand English and then we went straight down to the beach, where we didn't have to wait long before we started. We were helped getting in and out and explored other things along the coast besides the Benagil cave. The guide (a woman, very nice) told us a few more details and facts. Overall, we were out for quite a long time. It was a lot of fun and we would book it again!

Really really good. Excellent value and good amount of time. Didn’t feel rushed. Tour guide was really friendly! Definitely recommend

Nice guide, good expertise, great spots and good introduction, it was fun, definitely recommended. Even for beginners

It was a wonderful trip. The guide Fransisco was amiable. We traveled 4 different caves. They were all amazing.

Great value - Guide had great knowledge and interesting insights - Really good fun
